-fn switch in X Window


Dear all,

I want to use xterm with a font found in the fonts directory listed in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Code:
$ grep misc  /etc/X11/xorg.conf
  FontPath              "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
$ ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/7x13B-ISO8859-16.pcf.gz
-r--r--r--  1 root root 4600 2005-03-22 18:29 /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/7x13B-ISO8859-16.pcf.gz
$ xterm -fn 7x13B-ISO8859-16
xterm:  unable to open font "7x13B-ISO8859-16", trying "fixed"....
What am I doing wrong?

Regards, Carsten
